Monitor Supplier Performance

Accurate Forecasting

Monitor product lead times, previous sales history, seasonal trends, uplift trends, supplier reliability and frequency of reordering along with current stock and open sales and purchase orders.

Optimise Stock Management

Automatic re-ordering of stock when levels reach critically low levels, ensuring stock is available to maximise sales opportunities.


Plan your merchandising more effectively with ‘Open to Buy’ and our Weekly Sales and Stock Intake (WSSI) report, providing guidance on how much stock to purchase, real-time updates and the flexibility to make adjustments in line with current performance for future stock ordering or marketing campaigns.
